Photoshop: Adding a 10px margin all around a resized image


Question

I was given the task to resize images to dimensions of 736 x 475, with a 10px margin all around for a buffer zone in case there's shadow in the image or something else.

I found this tutorial for viewing the margin in inches. What I'm wondering is if there's a way to input 10px of margin (all borders) and have that area left as a blank area, instead of guesstimating what 10px would be in inches, using something like this converter?

Accepted Answer

You could open up 'Canvas size' (Alt + Ctrl/Cmd + C), select 'Pixels' as the unit of measure, and increase width and height by 20px (10px margin on all sides).
